MANDAUE CITY, Cebu – More health and safety guidelines will be implemented in the municipality of Tuburan until the end of the month to curb the rise in coronavirus disease cases in this midwestern Cebu town.

As agreed during a meeting which Mayor Danny Diamante called on Monday, November 16, the gathering of more than 20 individuals will already be prohibited unless covered by a special permit.

The municipal government has also ordered curfew implementation from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. of the next day for non-exempt individuals while indoor and outdoor non-contact sports and other exercises will now be prohibited.

“Usage of Quarantine Pass shall be effected to limit and control the Tuburanons in going out of their households. Only go out for essential purposes only,” the town’s advisory reads.

Residents, who are without quarantine passes and are required to go out of their homes for medical and essential purposes, are required to secure a certification from their respective barangays. However, the said certification will only be valid for use within this town that is located around 91 kilometers away from Cebu City via the Cebu Transcentral Highway.

Town officials also reiterate their appeal on the need to wear face shields and face masks when entering offices and business establishments and the presentation of a valid company ID when reporting for work in establishments that are located within their town.

Diamante called for a meeting with other town officials, members of their Inter-Agency Task Force, and barangay officials on monday to discuss the rise in their COVID cases.
